You are entitled to your opinions. My concept is the covert double agent with powers idea. How do you see the Spider-Woman movie being?
I already gave my idea of how the Spider-Woman movie should be in the previous pages - a supernatural/ spy genre based on how her comic book was.

As for Taskmaster training her - that's a recent retcon. Taskmaster hadn't even been invented at the time of her original comic (he only appeared in Avengers #196 which was in 1980) and certainly didn't have any dealings with her or Hydra. All the others you mention which happened in her comic (or before she had a regular series) have always involved the use of her venom blasts and super strength - no guns. When she went to assassinate Fury in Marvel Spotlight #32, she did so with her venom blasts.

As for being surgically altered - again, that's pretty much a recent thing and a bit of an injoke by Frank Cho to suggest she had surgically enhanced breasts when Hydra were augmenting her powers. Her origin didn't involve anything about her being surgically altered - she was simply given an experimental serum infused with spider blood and put in an accelerator where she aged at a decelerated rate, which was like her being in suspended animation for decades.
